There's a phone number. I'm assuming the $43,000 dollar price tag is a mistake or maybe it was a cartel armored drug truck

Juarez is across the border from El Paso, Texas. Price should be something like USD$3.3k. Looks like it was a government vehicle. Lots of crewcab Rangers there...

Hahaha. You got that right, man. That truck and any vehicle from the Mexican government sure was not taken good care of. I know for sure they buy new vehicles every 3 years because that is how long the oil in the engine takes to lose its lub properties.

Lol yes! When I visit my moms side of the family in Mexico City, I see the military and the Policía Federal trucks and vehicles,, nice ass vehicles, going 60 in a street full of pot holes,, going over giant speed bumps at full speed, and other horrible things for cars. Lol. But hey that's why it's for parts lol.

Lol. True that. They get nice F150, Rams and Silverados, and I know they use the vehicles 'to protect and to serve', but they sure don't know squad about how to make a turn without hitting the curb... Over here in Monterrey, we usually see Chargers and Challengers for city protection, as well as f150, and only f150s for country towns. Small vehicles like Rangers are used on small cities or towns.

4 doors are over rated. Lol. The 2.3L Duratec ain't enough to move the truck. If only we got a diesel option or the 4.0 engine...
